Advocacy In Action

Many voices speaking in unison can have huge impacts and make differences in the lives of those with IDD.

2021 Advocacy Focuses

Membership provides our agency the ability to advocate legislatively at the state and national levels. As we move forward, our agency continues to face enormous challenges given the current economic climate of our state and nation. By having our largest Membership in ACHIEVE history, our advocacy efforts with legislative and government officials will have the biggest impact ever.

This year, advocacy is focused on many issues including:

Halting a proposed 1% targeted Medicaid funding cut, and rolling back previous cuts to provider organizations
Restoring Cost of Living Adjustments, and implementing pandemic pay to boost DSP wages
Streamlining the placement process for thousands with IDD seeking residential programming
Customizing job placement and training to provide meaningful employment opportunities

Your Membership gives ACHIEVE a voice!
